Albertus Verhoesen is a well-known Dutch artist. Albertus Verhoesen was a pupil of J. van Ravenswaay and the livestock painter P.G. van Os. He lived and worked in Utrecht and Amersfoort and between 1824 and 1826 was part of the painting colony of Hilversum. He specialized in landscapes with domestic livestock, animal housing and scenes of poultry. During his Hilversum period he probably had lessons from B.C. Koekkoek, a fellow resident.
The museum Boymans- van Beuningen Rotterdam, Central Museum Utrecht and Rijksprentenkabinet Amsterdam have work from Verhoesen in their collection.
